So I was snooping around, thinking about what my next upgrade is going to look like when I happened across a link to this;

and that led to this;

I noted that they were refering to the SNB-E PCI Express 2.0 platform. Notice the PCI Express 2.0. I thought that was strange. Isn't the X79 chipset suppose to support pci-x 3.0? Looking around Intel's website anything I find related to the X79 chipset only mentions pci-x 2.0 or 2.1. Any of the motherboard manufacturers web sites all claim pci-x 3.0 support.
Was I skimming through the few reviews I looked at too quickly? Did I miss another important memo?
